Had a used supercharger installed w/ all gaskets
Gray smoke coming out of exhaust pipe after the car has sat for more than an hour due to an oil leak inside supercharger.
oil consumption
A cloud of bluish grayish smoke comes out of muffler the first time I start car everyday. To start the car have to hold key in start position for a little longer than any other vehicle.
Oil leaking and back hose too
well I bought this car for $330 and knew it was going to be in bad shape so far
supercharger is pushing oil (poured oil out of the intercooler) the motor shakes like mad and has absolutely no power not to mention there is a lot of oil coming out of the exhaust I also noticed oil in the spark plug chamber on a couple cylinder's where should I start
